Nationals come to Emory

By Lynn Nester

Emory will host the 2009 National Championships for collegiate club gymnastics teams, in partnership with the National Association of Intercollegiate Gymnastics Clubs. The meet kicks off Thursday, April 16 and will bring together 55 teams and roughly 600 competitors.

There will be six preliminary rounds of competition, continuing until the finals on Saturday, April 18. Emory Athletics invites the Atlanta community to attend the free event in the WoodPEC Arena.

Emory’s gymnastics team will compete in the fifth session on April 17, along with reigning national champion Texas A&M University.

Emory’s 12-person squad is the smallest to host the National Championships in the history of the competition. This year’s meet will be the largest National Championships ever held, prompting the NAIGC to schedule an additional preliminary session of competition.
